Knitting and Sewing Cards: April A-Z

Day 11! In case you missed it; It’s that time again, A-Z Challenge season! This month I am keeping things simple; sharing makes past and present, as well as a few I’ll try to create just for the challenge! Today I thought I would share some cards involving other crafts, so here are some knitting and sewing cards!

An A-Z of handmade cards - April A-Z Challenge 2022

Each post I will try to share around five or six pics of handmade cards; using different styles, methods and elements. For an added challenge, I will be working entirely from my craft stash! (I do have a ridiculous amount of papers, embelishments and what not to use!)

Starting 2022 with a Simple Knitting Project

I’ve had a nice little break at the beginning of the year, from work, and from the blog. It’s been nice to have a little bit of me time! Just chilling, reading and relaxing. But of course, I’ve also been working on some craft projects, ideas and plans. I’ve started the year with a simple knitting project to begin the year.

On the desk...

I wanted to do something that wouldn’t take too much brain power; as well as using up some of the stuff in my stash; so I’ve picked up my knitting needles, and some pretty cherry red yarn!

12 Days of Christmas 2021 – Knitted Bobble Hat

It’s been interesting juggling a lot of work hours, Christmas prep, and Christmas crafting; it’s lead to finding some fun projects to work on in a small amount of time! Like today’s project, a cute knitted bobble hat!

Christmas 5

Knitting is still a great chillout project for me, so this was nice to knit over an evening after work. Along with scarves, and mittens, hats are a great Chrismas present, and a really easy handmade gift, for beginners or experienced knitters alike!

Quick Knit Mug Cosy

Autumn is totally knitting season, if you ask me! There’s something nice about sitting in front of the tv, with a bit of knitting; and I love a quick little project; just to break up anything bigger I’m working on. So this year I knitted up a quick knit mug cosy, in autumnal orange.

Blogtober - The Craft Room and Beyond

The great thing about these sorts of projects is how fast they are, and you can make a few; whether you want something seasonal, something personalised, or just a bunch of different mug cosies to choose from!

Bright Knitting Update and Wild Week 2

I thought I’d share a little bit of a bright knitting update this week; as I have finally finished the first sleeve of the jumper! I am of course also still trying to participate in The Wildlife Trust’s 30 Days Wild; and thought I’d share what I’ve been up to this week.

The goal of 30 Days Wild is to do something wild; or connect with nature in some way, for 30 days.

Bright Knitted Jumper Project

I first started this bright knitted jumper project ages ago; and keep putting it down to work on other things! Lately though I have picked it back up again, to work on it a little more; and thought I’d share a little update!

On the desk...

When I started knitting this jumper I was going to make it purely with rectangles as a super quick and easy slouch jumper, though my limited skill has improved to the extent I am working on slightly better sleeves.

Jewels and Sparkle – A-Z Challenge 2021

We’re finally here, J. My most dreaded of letters for this years challenge. Honestly; I wrote a list and couldn’t come up with anything for J! Someone suggested jewellery; but I don’t do much in the way of making jewellery (though I’ve had a go here and there)! Though I do use jewels, gems, glitter, beads and sparkle a lot in crafting!

A-Z Challenge 2021

This year my A-Z Challenge theme is: The Craft Room and Beyond – A Retrospective. A look back at previous content and basically a chance to share and revisit some things from the archive. As I have said before; if you see something that piques your interest that I don’t link to; certainly seek out the search bar, or get in touch!

Valentines Gifts You Can Send in the Post

I was having a think this week about Happy Mail; and given the time of year, and the current situation here in the UK; it made me think of what Valentines gifts (or “galentines” etc etc) you could send in the post.

Feel the Love

So I thought I’d do a little post sharing some ideas, great if you wanted to step away from the simple flowers and chocolates, or even if you were just looking for ideas to send something nice to a special friend!

And as a bonus I’m also sharing a super cute and easy craft idea anyone can do, for almost any occasion!

Our Rainy Week and Cross Stitching (Part 3)

SO still in lockdown, and still working on Love Tree, so I thought I’d share a bit about our rainy week, and of course a cross-stitch update too!

This Week

What does a rainy week mean for us? Well, lots of movie watching, a bit of reading, finally actually finishing tidying the craft room, and of course cross-stitching!!
